I have a 2002 yard machine by has a 21 hp gt ohv year is 2002.dose any onr no the valdes seting??

I'm sorry to hear you spent money on parts that didn't get you started. I think your problem is you are in need of a valve adjustment. You will need a torx screw driver, a feeler gauge, and a 10mm wrench. Remove the valve cover and check the looseness of your rocker arms, you will have some. Place your feeler gauge at .004 thousandths , place torx screw driver into adjustment slot, and place 10mm wrench on nut to loosen hold. Tighten torx screw to were feeler gauge just feels snug between top of valve and rocker arm, tighten 10mm nut. Do his on both valves and your done. this is a common problem on overhead valve heads. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

How do I adjust the valves on a 1998 old bravada 4.3 vortec

You don't. They are non-adjustable hydraulic lifters. GM's spec for torque on the rocker arm nuts: Tighten the valve rocker arm ball studs to 47 N·m (35 lb ft). Once the valve rocker arm nuts are installed and properly torqued, no additional valve lash adjustment is required.

Rocker arm come out on jeep chrysler 3.7 eng

A rocker arm is the arm that sits on top of the valve stem and connects to the push rods 'the push rods sit on the cam so when engine is running, the push rods go up and down in a timed sequence and with the rocker arms, open and close the inlet and exhaust valves. the rocker arm is located inside the valve(rocker)cover .If the rocker arm gets loose or comes out.
Check the nuts on the shaft which holds the rocker arms.either the shaft or nuts are got loose.They need to be tightened.Don't make it too tight or too loose.  Too tight,and they don't flutter right. Too loose,and they allow the rocker arms to wiggle out of whack. Other possibility can be  something is broken, bent, collapsed, or out of adjustment. 
Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

A worn valve lifter or a loose rocker arm is causing that noise.To find out which one it is, the valve covers have to come off and check each one. If the rocker arms are snug, then it's a lifter, in which case the whole top part of the engine has to come off to get at the lifters.

Rocker arm adjustments 5.7 vortec

as long as the oil system was primed and the lifters are full tighten each rocker down until it is snug enough that you can't move it with your fingers.put the valve covers back on and run the motor for a couple minutes. then run the motor with one of the valve covers off at a time. it can be a little messy but this is the best way. as the motor is running loosen each rocker nut until you hear chatter then tighten it back down until it stops plus one quarter turn. this is the best way I know to make sure they are just right.

Datsun stanza 1980 tappets (lifters)

This car has hydraulic lifters( tappets} therefore should not adjustment, you probably have a bad or weak lifter. But, in any case you have to remove the valve covers to make the adjustment. You will see the adjustable bolt on the rocker arm. rotate the engine until the valve is all the way to the top, [no tension on the valve spring] then place a feeler Gage in between the rocker arm and the valve stem, adjust the rocker arm until the feeler Gage is snug but not tight. Do this with each valve. Check the book for the correct Gage to use but I think it is a .018.
